Curling career

Ferguson was a member of the University of Alberta team that lost in the tie-breaker game of the 2010 CIS/CCA Curling Championships. She played third for the team, which was skipped by Jessica Mair. Also that season, Ferguson played third for Brenda Doroshuk's women's rink which went 0-3 at the 2010 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

In 2011, Ferguson made the transition to the skip position after her new skip, Bobbie Sauder took some time off to have a baby. At the 2011 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, her rink made the playoffs, but lost in the quarter final to Heather Nedohin.

After the season, Ferguson assembled a new team, that included Olympic silver medallist Cori Morris at the lead position. The team lost in the quarter finals of their first Grand Slam of Curling event, the 2011 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic.

In 2012, Ferguson joined the Valerie Sweeting rink, throwing second rocks and acting as the team's vice-skip (by holding the broom on Sweeting's shots). In 2013, the team made two Grand Slam quarter finals, at the 2013 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic and the 2013 Colonial Square Ladies Classic. The team also qualified for the 2013 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials at the 2013 Olympic Pre-Trials.

Personal life

Ferguson works as a Curling Development Coach for the Saville Community Sports Centre.[2]
